An English Teacher Shares His Travel Adventures in Shenzhen, Hong Kong, and Macau

Hong Kong was more amazing than I ever imagined. It reminded me of of Manhattan with it’s own culture and identity. It was crowded, busy, everyone on top of each other, and everyone spoke fluent English. Hong Kong is divided into two main parts: Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. Kowloon is the part of HK that’s attached to the mainland and Hong Kong Island is the isle with the main part of the city and beaches.
My favorite segment of Hong Kong was “The Peak”. It’s definitely a tourist attraction but definitely worth it. It’s the highest terrace in Hong Kong, and the view is breath taking. We also went to the Yang Kwei Fei district which resembles SOHO in NYC or London. It’s a condense area where clubs, bars, hookah lounges, and speakeasies are all set. The prices are expensive if anything, but I just charged it to the vacation as a fun expense. Hong Kong was pretty expensive compared to the mainland, but the Chinese Yuan is worth more than the Hong Kong dollar, so it works out.
This was one of the most exciting trips that I’ve had to date. A lot done in a short window of days.
